Conner Gwyn Schenck PLLC attorneys provide representation in a range of regulatory issues affecting the construction industry, including representation before occupational licensing boards, the North Carolina Department of Labor, and the North Carolina Safety and Health Review Board.

We represent individuals and companies requiring assistance in obtaining proper occupational licenses and defending against charges brought by licensing boards. As project delivery systems have advanced, application of contractor and design professional licensing regulations have become more complex. We have helped clients obtain the required licensure and addressed licensure issues in a variety of situations, pre- and post-project commencement. Our experience and our working relationship with regulatory boards allow us to provide comprehensive representation before occupational licensing boards in both formal and informal venues.

In our OSHA practice, we provide clients with comprehensive representation in all aspects of project safety. We routinely represent companies charged with violations of safety and health regulations as well as companies seeking guidance on implementing and executing safety programs and policies.

We regularly represent clients in connection with contested OSHA citations before the North Carolina Safety and Health Review Board. We work with OSHA personnel and the North Carolina Department of Justice to negotiate fair and reasonable settlements of OSHA citations. When a settlement cannot be negotiated, we represent clients in hearings before the Hearing Examiners of the Safety and Health Review Board. We have represented clients on OSHA citations involving fall protection, excavations, personal protective equipment, overhead power lines, energized circuitry, tilt-up wall construction, asbestos-containing material, equipment maintenance, manufacturing facility safety and a general contractor’s responsibility for work site safety. We have also represented clients in successful appeals of Hearing Examiner’s decisions to the full Safety and Health Review Board.

We are active participants in local and national organizations involved in regulating the construction industry, including the regulation of general contractors, mechanical and fire sprinkler contractors, structural component manufacturers, and utility contractors. Our participation in these organizations provides Conner Gwyn Schenck PLLC with an understanding of the industry and the business and market effects of construction and design regulation essential to a comprehension of the construction industry.
